Institutions of higher education around the world have responded to the challenge of globalization by internationalizing their curricula. Incorporating elements of cross-cultural examination to a freshman Fundamentals of Public Speaking class proved to be an important first step toward globalization for this speech professor. In the class, students were placed in groups of 5 or 6, and each group selected a theme regarding study abroad and places abroad. Each group member examined an aspect of the group's selected theme in a 2-3-minute speech. The act of integrating a global component into the Fundamentals of Public Speaking course broadened the students' knowledge concerning a country and its cultures as well as encouraged them to participate in the university's study abroad program. Through this process, important course goals can be reached while infusing an internationalization component. Both professors and students benefit without an excessive amount of extra work on the part of students or professors.
